Bismarck police say an 18-year-old man missing since mid-May is now believed to have been killed.
Authorities have not found the body of John Swain, but they've charged a man with murdering him. Twenty-five-year-old Theo Crowe, of Trenton, is in custody in Williams County on an unrelated matter.
Crowe's attorney in that case says he isn't representing him on the murder charge. Court documents don't list an attorney for Crowe in Burleigh County.
Police say Swain had moved to Bismarck recently from Sioux Falls, S.D., for work reasons. His roommate reported him missing on May 14. Authorities recently recovered evidence in the case that led them to charge Crowe.
Police are urging people to be on the lookout for signs of fresh digging, where a body might have been buried.
